Madame Vastra to Return?

Tongue-wielding Victorian Assassin Madame Vastra and her lesbian lady-servant Jenny stole the show in this years mid-season finale A Good Man Goes to War, an appearance that sent the Internet a-quivering with anticipation of a surely-must-be-done-soon spin-off.

Well quivering internet buddies Steven Moffat speaking to SFX and has already pitched the idea to BBC Controller of Drama Commissioning Ben Stephenson:

“I instantly pitched it to Ben Stephenson, he just said ‘…Yes!’. And then I said ‘I obviously don’t have time to do this…’ [laughs].”

But before the Sapphic Jago & Lightfoot get their own show to play with Moffat has plans to revisit the pair:

“They were great fun to write. Obviously the first person to think about a spin-off was me, when I was writing A Good Man Goes To War… A Victorian Silurian? Her lesbian maid? Come on!

I was pleased by the reaction to them, but not surprised. They really cut through as characters, given how little screen-time they had. I certainly wouldn’t be averse to them returning. It’s just a thing that worked, isn’t it? I love that Victorian setting, and having kicked it out of Sherlock Holmes I can always kick it in somewhere else!”

It wouldn’t have happened in The Talons of Weng Chiang



About

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
